I Am Who I Am

I'm not myself
I'm not who you want me to be
I'm not who I want to be
I am who I am
I'm sad most of the time
I'm not suicidal
But I'm not breathing life
I smile to look happy
I'm such a good actor that no one notices
Sometimes I wish they could
I don't want attention but I want people to know I'm sad
I'm not one for crying
But lately it's all I want to do
I go through the day in a haze talking to people as if I'm happy
I laugh at their jokes
When they ask me if I'm ok
I smile and say yes
Wishing I could say no
I'm not myself
But I am who I am.
Myself

I'm 14. I'm in theater arts, the kids there are so social and I want to be friends with them but my anti-social best friend is there too, and I want to hangout with him. I'm not confident, I have massive social anxiety, I see a therapist twice a month to help. Kids bully me, anytime I try to be myself it backfires, people don't like me, I feel like hating me is a natural human instinct. It's not my fault I have to correct them when they're wrong, they always reply with "Shut up Justin nobody was talking to you", the way I see it if you don't directly address somebody when talking, I feel that your question is open for anybody to answer. I'm also an atheist, every kid in school knows, they all hate me for it "I didn't say bless you because I didn't want to offend you", kids always pick on me for being different, I'm a nerd,I hate sports,I don't believe in God, these things make me a bullying target, all because of social anxiety.

My story is basically that I am also not suicidal, but I do put out on a front like everything is o.k. I really am just trying to get closer to God, but it's still real hard for me to go through it alone. Just broke up with my boyfriend...and I have no friends at school, but I have God.
